WELCOME to Challenge #69 - Let the Troubles Begin 
This Challenge runs from 
Monday, Oct 19th thru Sunday, Nov 1st
"Bat Rainbow Fall Color Challenge"  


Thing 1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "We found Bats in our belfry but we're not crazy. Come play with us. Let's hang out! Using my clipart image, all you have to do is to use at least three (3) colors, from my Bat Rainbow of Fall Colors to create a project. Colors include Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple. Neutrals like black, white, and brown plus metallics like gold, copper, and silver are also free. Just remember to use three or more colors from the Bat Rainbow. 

You can stop here...

OR, you can choose to include Twisted Sister's Optional Twisted Twist below. 




Thing 3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "Now don't go batty... in fact, I am banning bats! My twist is 'DO NOT INCLUDE ANY BATS' on your project. Instead, let's dress things up with cute Halloween images. Ghosts, goblins, witches, pumpkins, mummies, skeletons, etc. are okay, but NO BATS."  

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw if you have excluded bats from your project.  







Thing 2:  Double Dare 
says, "Whether or not you chose to include bats, if you have created a Halloween project, you may enter your project at The Paper Girls Challenge #210 "Halloween". Click HERE to enter and receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw."  

The Paper Girls Challenge closes on Friday, October 30th, so make sure you enter your Halloween projects no later than that date.

WELCOME to Challenge #68
Let the Troubles Begin! 
This Challenge runs from 
Monday, October 5th thru Sunday, October 18th

"Tall Tales"  

 

Thing 1: Trouble Maker
says, "I'm going to tell you a Tall Tale... but don't let that scare you. Create a Tall and Skinny card (aka slim line) for any occasion." 

"You are free to decide the measurements but it seems as if Tall and Skinny cards vary. Possible sizes are 3.5" x 7.5" OR 3.5" x 8.5" OR 4" x 8" OR whatever will fit in a #10 envelope. AND, you can choose to create your card in either portrait or landscape layout."

You can stop here...
OR you can choose to include Twisted Sister's Optional Twist below.






Thing 3: Twisted Sister
says, "I received word that we have to deliver a Tall Tail. How's that possible? I don't have a tail and neither do our Sneetches... Help! Create a project using a Thing with a Tail." 

"It can be real or fantasy, and it can be more than one but it must have a Tail. If you have multiple Things with Tails then it's your choice to stack them up, group them together, or single one out, but we MUST see at least one tail."

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw if you include this twist in your project.

BUT don't stop here... 




Thing 2
: Double Dare:  
says, "Since we do not have a scheduled partner for this challenge, you can still earn extra points for our random draw. Just use any of our previous partners with your Tall and Skinny card - with or without the twist.  There are a few that we know will work for the challenge." 

"This means each time you link to a previous partner with the same card, you gain an additional chance at the Random Draw. Please identify each of them in your blog along with our Double Trouble link."

Challenge #67 "Off the Edge" partnering with Try Stampin' on Tuesday "Sketch"

Click HERE for an introduction to our challenges
and HERE for complete guidelines.
Please take the time to read so you don't get into trouble. Consider becoming a follower and using our participant badge or any photo from our current challenge for your blog posting.


WELCOME to Challenge #67 - Let the Troubles Begin 
September 21st to October 4th

"On, Off, or Over the Edge?"  


Thing 1: Trouble Maker says, "We've all just about reached the proverbial edge with this ongoing pandemic. Let's not panic! We need to stay focused at a time like this so let's focus on a sketch from TSOT below. Keep it simple... take advantage of the shape that's off the edge by using shapes, paper, doilies, frames, sentiments and/or partial images, etc." 


You can stop here...
OR, you can choose to go further over the edge with Twisted Sister's Optional Twist below.


Thing 3: Twisted Sister 
says, "There she goes again, Trouble Maker is trying to push me over the edge. So whether it's "On, Off or Over the Edge"... whatever ... let's just do it! Try to go beyond your edge and veer away from your normal comfort zone as you create your project for "Off the Edge". Here are some ideas by Jennifer McGuire that may be useful in providing inspiration."

Thing 2:  Double Dare 
says, "If you followed the sketch then link your project to Try Stampin' on Tuesday's Biweekly Sketch Challenge (TSOT) HERE whether you used Twisted Sister's optional twist or not. You will receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw."   Since Try Stampin' starts on Tuesday, September 22nd, they have agreed to allow our Monday entries to come back and enter their challenge.  

Feel free to change the orientation... rotate or flip the sketch or use its mirror image.
